Megan's cafe and restaurant, King's Road

Megan's is the type of place where the Made in Chelsea cast hang out: a humble, picturesque little cafe-restaurant-deli where Fulham's upper west side enjoy amicable champagne brunches and light lunches.

Despite being located on the upmarket King's Road with elite customers, the place has a down to earth and friendly atmosphere, and prices are very reasonable. Visitors are kept content with yummy home cooked food and delicious fresh juices. Out back is a magical courtyard to use on warmer days.

I went along for a late breakfast with my best friend last weekend. We found Megan’s to be the perfect place to munch and gossip. Every table was occupied by a gaggle of excited girls, the adjacent lot were sipping fizzy and celebrating an engagement.

After an extra busy morning, the staff were very apologetic explaining that all the hot food had gone, so sadly no bacon butties and toasted crumpets for us. We settled for warmed almond croissants and candied lemon cake, with creamy cappuccinos and freshly pressed apple and orange juice. Everything was delicious, I just wish we’d had the chance to sample more of the menu; I guess that’s an excuse for going back.

Next to the till home-made jams, flavoured oils, pickles and sauces are prettily stacked for diners to buy on their way out. The white peach and saternes jam and chilli and thyme infused olive oil looked particularly appetizing.

As we left the waitresses were frantically getting ready for the next bookings. Megan’s doesn’t need to advertise, they pride themselves on being the best kept secret cafĂ© in South West London.
